The sports board of the Champions Hockey League sanctioned the Canadian forward for an illegal check to the neck or neck area.


John Quenneville will miss the next two games of the ZSC Lions in this season's Champions Hockey League after being suspended for a violation of the IIHF Rule 48, which prohibits check in the neck area. Moreover, he was also fined €1,400.

In the 30th minute of yesterday's game between the Lions and IFK Helsinki, Quenneville checked Otto Salin to the head for what was considered an avoidable and reckless action.
